Upper Perkiomen Police Officers Step In For Santa

GETTING IN LAST-MINUTE SHOPPING – Upper Perkiomen Police Department Ofc. Jim McVeigh and helpers were busy at Walmart on Saturday (Dec. 16, 2017), rounding up last-minute grocery items needed for the department’s fourth annual “Shop With A Cop” program. The effort, which this year benefited 20 students of need from Marlborough and Hereford elementary schools and their families, ended Sunday (Dec. 17) with a gift-shopping spree. Kids bought their own Christmas gifts, and those for family members, while accompanied by a police officer. Then they had a pizza-and-dessert party with the department, and headed home with wrapped packages and fixings for a Christmas Day meal.
